Having visited some amazing aquariums this one is boring and uneventful. The only thing I enjoyed where the seals. I understand this aquarium is one of the oldest in Europe yet that does not safe it from its mediocrity. Would have skipped it if known better.

Nice little family out here. The kids really enjoyed it with all the bright colors for instance. Very big shark tank with multiple angles and lots of species! Also very informative expositions about the history of the sea, whalehunting, etc.
Only thing that is not so great is the fact that there's no English or other translations for most signs. I speak some French but scientific language is too hard for me. The building wasn't that easy to find as well, we got lost before we found the entrance.

Spent about an hour at the aquarium on a rainy day. Good in parts but seemed quite expensive overall. Impressed by the huge shark tank. Nice cafe and views but overall was left expecting more.

Parts of this aquarium were very good but my main complaint was that none of the 'residents' were described in English (or any other language than French). Frustrating to say the least !

Just like other people, we went to the aquarium on a rainy day. The fish tanks are all very clean and (mostly) not too small for the animal living in it. The shark and turtles were our favorite. During the visit, you have to go outside over the roof to the next part. You have a lovely view from up there.
I think it must be great for kids, but adults can be amazed too!
As I don't go to a lot of aquariums, I wouldn't know if the entrance is expensive, but I think it was worth the price.
